Three-Bean Salad: This three-bean salad has far less sugar than typical versions. We opt for a combination of canned and frozen beans (for convenience) along with fresh green beans for their great taste and texture.
Italian three bean salad is made with kidney beans, garbanzo beans and green beans. Vegetarian bean salad is a high-fiber and high-protein vegetarian bean salad perfect for a picnic or potluck. You'll want to prepare it the night before to let the beans marinate in the dressing overnight. This recipe is vegan as well as vegetarian.
Summer green beans are here! Perhaps other beans, too, so substitute any of the three beans with what you can get on sale or from your garden...or the neighbors'. Canned garbanzos, pintos or black beans are fine, too, in this beautiful and delicious summer salad that works as a side dish or protein-filled vegetarian entree. Quinoa (KEEN-wah) is a light, whole grain with plenty of protein itself
